Dexter Manley Apologizes For Racist Joke About Black Quarterbacks

Ex-Washington star defensive end Dexter Manley is infamous for being illiterate and ignorant but the Uncle Ruckus wannabe recently talked about Black QBs in recent interview that left everyone cringing.

Dexter describes the running style of many Black quarterbacks in the NFL and it wasn’t too nice…

According to HuffPo the ain’t isht host is now apologizing for his self-hating words:

“I made a comment about this black quarterback stuff,” Manley stated. “I do apologize and, you know, I say some things I don’t think about sometimes.”

Manley has been associated with controversial actions and statements for years. In his broadcasting career, he’s spewed both homophobic and sexist remarks, while his tenure in the NFL was marked by repetitive drug use.

His “joke” on Saturday was especially notable in the midst of a season in which one black quarterback in particular — Carolina Panther Cam Newton — has seen his MVP-worthy year blemished by continual discriminatory criticisms, while white signal callers have been able to get away with far more controversial acts with far less criticism.

Manley’s comment has since been denounced by many of his fellow media members. Let’s hope that we all do better in the future.
